Enjoy a Film School style experience in world-renowned arts university setting. This January-start programme aims to facilitate your creative and intellectual development whilst exploring your interest in the practice of contemporary fiction filmmaking. It is distinctive in that it focuses on the practical, analytical and creative aspects of filmmaking from a range of perspectives rather than solely from the perspective of the filmmaker as auteur. For this reason, the programme allows you to specialise in several filmmaking craft areas: Sound Design, Editing, Cinematography-Camera, Cinematography-Lighting, Producing or Directing. Innovation and the integration of film theory with practice are important components of the programme. The academic content of the MA concentrates on situating creative filmmaking within a wider enquiry into media practice as a cultural activity. The MA is structured around the making of short films in small production teams. You work on at least one film per term in your specialist role, culminating in a major production towards the end of the degree. In addition to choosing a single specialist area on which to concentrate, you attend classes in related disciplines and collaborate with students across the specialisations on film projects. This framework is designed to stimulate collaborative practice by providing you with a breadth of filmmaking knowledge combined with a high level of expertise in one of six key filmmaking roles. What you study The programme operates in two streams: *Stream 1. Sound Design & Cinematography *Stream 2. Producing, Directing & Editing In your application, you should clearly specify your first and second choices of filmmaking craft specialisation. The choices are: ?Editing ?Sound Design ?Cinematography - Lighting ?Cinematography - Camera ?Directing ?Producing Students attend all the classes in one of the streams, and specialise in one area. Students from both streams work together on film shoots and exercises. Everyone is also expected to undertake the role of production assistant to the group producer in addition to their specialist role. The programme consists of a Practical Filmmaking course which accounts for 70% of the degree and two FilmMedia Theory courses which account for 30%. You are expected to pursue additional research in your particular specialisation, and are encouraged to take advantage of access to production facilities outside of taught classes. The academic content of the course concentrates on situating creative filmmaking within a wider enquiry into media practice as a cultural activity. Throughout your time at Goldsmiths, you are encouraged to engage with the thriving short filmmaking culture in London and to collaborate with students from other screen related MAs at Goldsmiths. There will also be opportunities to collaborate with students from external institutions in areas such as Art Directing and Music Composition. Many of the practical workshops on the Filmmaking programme are run by experienced professionals from the UK Film Industry. Recent speakers at Goldsmiths have included high profile figures such as Danny Boyle, Asif Kapadia, Stephen Frears, Michael Winterbottom, and Alan Parker. Goldsmiths film students regularly go on to win awards at major international film festivals, and have even been nominated for the short film Oscar. Our alumni are active in the film and television industries around the world. Assessment: Examination of finished film projects examination of your reflections on the filmmaking process examination of two formal essays. Skills We aim to help you develop yourself as a creatively and conceptually capable sound designer, editor, cinematographer, producer or director. In addition to practical filmmaking skills, we encourage you to develop a variety of transferable intellectual, organisational and communication skills.
